Note on Husband: Daniel HARRIS - shared note

1. The marriage certificate of his son Mark gives his profession as 'Labourer'.


2. In the 1851 census Daniel and Maria appear to be living in Hanham, Gloucester (which is next door to Oldland where their son Mark's christening is recorded). He is aged 44, born in Hanham, and his profession is again 'Labourer'. He is living with his wife and 8 children, including a son Mark of the right age. Another son, James, may already have left home. Note that there is also a George Harris, Servant, aged 17 living next door, who might be related.


3. Beware - There is another Daniel + Maria at Soundwell, Bitton in the 1881 census, and they are there as Daniel + Mary in the 1851 census. It is fairly easy to prefer the Hanham couple, since the Daniel in Soundwell is a Coal Miner, and they do not have any children named Mark or James; there is a Maria but she is too young for an 1837 christening (see the notes about Mark relating to the christening of Mark, James and Mary).


4. There are two references in the Gloucester Gaol records for 1869 and 1875 to a Daniel Harris of Bitton. It's ok - they turn out to relate to someone born about 1840.


5. Note that the Registration district for post-1837 births in Hanham is probably Keynsham (which looks more like Somerset).


6. In the 1841 census the family is in Hanham as follows

Daniel Harriss (sic) m age 30 Ag. Labourer

Maria f age 25

Mary f age 11

James m age 9

George m age 7

Mark m age 5

Ann f age 3

Eliza f age 1

Particularly interesting is that this family is immediately followed by a separate household consisting of William Hariss 75, coal miner and Hester Harris aged 80. Are these the parents of Daniel? Hester is slightly old, but it seems a fair guess. This leads on to a record in the IGI of the marriage of William Harris to Hester Iles at St. Marys Bitton on 18/5/1789. (NB. This is a record contributed by an LDS member, not a genuine parish register entry.)

Note on Wife: Maria BAILEY - shared note

1. Maria is shown as aged 40 in the 1851 census, born in Hanham.


2. The maiden name of Bailey is taken from the birth certificate of her daughter Emma.


3. The LDS Vital Records CD has a record of her marriage which gives her name as Bayley.
